Due to a planned power outage on Friday, 1/14, between 8am-1pm PST, some services may be impacted.
Pierre leads the Noetic Society Parmenides study group through another morning of study. Lately we've been taking a break from the Parmenides, going through Proclus' Theology of Plato(*) instead, in order to see how Proclus lays out the 14 orders of gods implied in the Parmenides.
Today we focus on the first paragraph of chapter 7 of book 2 of Proclus' Theology of Plato (*).
[I did not attend this meeting, and today's diagram is not from Pierre. It is only from myself as I listened to Barbara's tape later and read this paragraph and tried to work out the hierarchy that Proclus is proposing. He describes this hierarchy (or parts of it, or maybe even two different hierarchies!) twice in today's paragraph 1. It is unclear to me, as I could not completely map the first h. onto the second h.. So on the left is his first description, and on the right is his second, and the diagram represents my questions to myself about how (if at all) the first may be mapped onto the second. -JS]
